50 Cent touched by fans in AfricaJune 17th, 2008 - 2:25 pm ICT by IANS
London, June 17 (IANS) Rapper 50 Cent was deeply touched when he went on a trip to Africa recently with his G-Unit labelmates because it made him realise just how much fans there had to spend to attend his concert. 50 Cent and his crew performed in South Africa and Tanzania and he had been effusive in his gratitude to his fans.
He said: “It’s a bigger sacrifice for them to actually attend these shows. Something is not happening in their lives for a month because they decided to spend money to buy tickets. It’s, like, ‘Okay, we’re not driving this month because we’re going to see that show.’ It’s a big deal to them. It means something more to them than it means to attend a concert in the US.”
Former South African president Nelson Mandela also took time out to meet 50 Cent.
